The 2023 SESE Research Review will be held in-person on Friday, February 24th in the Illini Union.

Research Review is the festive annual gathering where graduate students, faculty, and research-active undergraduates display their research and socialize. Researchers from throughout SESE present posters, typically over 70 in total, and a few take the stage to present one of the ever-popular 5-minute “lightning talks.” The photo contest never fails to showcase the incredible Earth and Society photography captured by members of our school. This year's theme is The Great Outdoors!
